Spyker, I like most of your designs, but this one doesn't do anything for me.
looks pretty "busy" for anyone who doesn't know the "VTX"
Props for keeping your designs alive and trying to add some variety.

Sorry Spyker, but I'd have to agree with the post above. Hard to make it out. Especially the T, it gets lost in there.

Not my favorite of your designs - I love the "simple silhouette" look, I think the mesh and lights can do a lot for it, but the I prefer a classic look that is immediately recognizable.

... and having said all that, I've just had another look at your site. The V-Star is really complicated, but it looks excellent!

I'm with the rest of them. I had a sissybar insert like Bassdude has from one of the members and the matching air filter cover but they never really grew on me. They were very well made it was the design that got to me after a relatively short period so they left for another members bike.

Yeah, definitely too busy, I think you should go with a simpler design :D

Really like most your work and wish I could go against the general concensus on this one but I can't. Too busy and hard to make out.

Personally, I'd like to get one with this design in it...I have one of Doug's Spectre air filters here waiting to go on the bike, but really hate to pull this one off the bike due to the airbox cutout uniqueness...

Hey Bass, if you could get permission from LazerDude, it can probably be made, since it was his design IIRC.
